The student artwork will be featured throughIMG_20140926_122615 Feb. 5. Gallery hours are 12-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, 7-9 p.m. Tuesday evening and 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information about January’s exhibitions, contact Carmen Lozar, gallery director, at 309-556-3391.

If you can’t make it to the juried exhibits, you can always take a slow walk through Ames (especially the 2nd floor) and check out some of the student art on display. Each year the library purchases a piece of student art, to be displayed permanently in the library. The most current piece is behind the Help@Ames desk on the entry level.

While you’re in Ames checking out our art collection, take a look at what else is going on this week.
